yes it is. however the cones won't be put in the exact location as drawn. It's the overall layout i like. just lil neatening required.

I have layouts of all the tracks from the WTCC. Ive been suggesting that we could use these layouts with some minor changes. We could be racing mini replicas of actual world championship circuits....this one is Anderstorp Sweden....what you guys think ??

ppl will go find the courses on gt5 and practise by using their car in the game. ppl helping making track will encourage participation but may also cause confusion among the over competitive bunch who may bad talk the course and person and say they make they course for their car. trust me it will happen

What's the problem with posting an existing photo of a course for general comments (given that the photo already exists)?

I dont have Visio to edit the file.

Also, I dont think driving the course in a game is the same as driving the course laid out wth cones. Its gonna be very short compared to the actual course in the sim. You only gonna first or second gear. No advantage to be had.

I just thought it wud be kinda cool.

fellas. pointer cones point to the side of cones you need to pass on, with a possible turn behind it. not the cone at the apex.
while gates are nice, you want to avoid the "sea of cones" effect.

adriano, i sent yours via email to you.

I like david's idea....he got the course convention wrong, but the layout seems doable, and with a lot less cones too
re Adriano, no way would it come close to the real course as depicted in GT5, so no risk of 'unfair advantage'

yuh ignoring me orr???

for future reference, whats wrong with doing what djaggs did initially? I understand the need for the template if I am to design a new course, but what if I already have a photo of what my proposed course design looks like? I wouldnt want to go thru the trouble of drawing it only to be told it isn't workable/needs major modifications

But a circle is a great test, not all cars / drivers can get to the limit and stay there.

Somebody could fix it . I think its doable, it cud be called simply....Anderstorp.

There are also a number of other racetracks that could be adapted, but i like this one for its speed and simplicity as well as its combination of left and right corners.
